You may - or may not if you didn't read your message once you've posted it - have noticed. X and I installed an automatic mouth (or keyboard) washer on this site. Some words are not allowed, they are automatically changed.

For example, "a$$ hole" becomes "moron", and the F word becomes "klutz" or sometimes "frag". (*)

A few weeks back, one of our members posted something that came out as "Klutz you, [XYZ]" - There ensued a discussion as how to the poster called his target a klutz, when in fact he was saying "F* you" - Not very elegant of him.

After reading Inkling7's post about the British soldier and his relationship with Muslims and non-Muslims, I saw "klutz" appear a number of times, so I thought I'd post a reminder.

Profanity is not allowed on this site, and the person who used the F word has better watch his language.

ETA - OK, now instead of "klutz", anyone typing the F word will get "frak" - that's the term used in BattleStar Galactica, and by our erstwhile member FrakkinShip (Number 8 on CoS, where I "recruited" him), who seems to have dropped out of here years ago.

(*) Some of these have changed in the wake of the "sh*thole" countries discussion. I had to reinstate some of the "bad" words because if not the articles and posts became unintelligible. Bottom line is, whether the Automatic Word Censor is active or not, please watch your language. Thank you. Very Happy

Is playing havoc with Trump's infamous "sh*t hole" countries. I've been following the posts and have had to come in to edit it so that the word appears, because if written in "plain script", it just comes out as "sh*t" without the hole. I guess the censor is assimilating the "s"hole with the "a"hole, LOL.
